Canvas Trio - 10000 Reasons

Here's a little project I did before Christmas, just for fun - I bought a 4-pack of 6-inch canvases at Walmart when we were in the States, with the intent of working on something larger than a card, and to make something for art's sake, not for a deadline, challenge, or quota. I also wanted to work out something using some lyrics from Matt Redman's song Ten Thousand Reasons - love that one.

So each canvas is done with acrylic paints, inks, and some strips of newspaper... stamps from Impression Obsession/dkdesigns, Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz and Stamp Camp, and stencils from Crafter's Workshop. I didn't take pictures of my process, because I just wanted to enjoy the process without having to document it. I just need that sometimes.

I created my own masks for the larger shapes - I like the bird the best, and I saved it - maybe I'll use it again! The canvases turned into my husband's Christmas present, and they're up above his computer - I love that! And they're such a great reminder to keep our minds on eternal things and the many blessings we have - too many to count, really.

Thank you for stopping by!
